Front Step Revamp

Episode DROC-113

This episode is set along the New England coastline, in the picturesque town of Cohasset, Massachusetts, where Dean and Derek are called in to revamp the front step of a 1950s Cape home. To restore the front entrance, they’ll remove the old slate platform (which is cracking, shifting and weather-worn). In its place, they'll build up the new platform and set bluestone with cobble risers. Dean and Derek will explain the proper way to demo the existing step, how to design a field pattern and how to set bluestone for treads and field. The two will also take us the quarry for a lesson on how to pick bluestone and cobbles, based on color, size and function.
